Fun outing!

Had a great time on this tour. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and funny. As a local, learned so much about a neighborhood I thought I already knew. The food was delicious and our guide gave us lots of tips on other places to try in the future for different specialties to make further culinary exploration easier and more accessible. Will definitely be taking another tour soon and hope to have Brett as my guide again!

Best food tour ever!

The Chinatown Tour was the best food tour I've ever been on. The food was plentiful, delicious and varied. But the best part of our tour was our guide Burt. I learned so much about Chinatown, the food culture, the history and the traditions because Burt kept things interesting. His sense of humor is also a big plus. He is an asset to the tour company and the next time I'm in town I'll be sure to book another tour with him as my guide.

Delicious Chinatown tour

We had Rahim once before on a tour of Soho and really enjoyed him. This tour was a little different, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. We will definitely be going back to a couple of the restaurants. DimSum Gogol was a favorite as was ABC and their delicious eggplant dish. We look forward to returning to New York and revisiting some of the tours we've done before since we have now done all of them. We recommend this company to anyone going to New York or locals, many of whom have never heard of these tours.

Bert gave a wonderful tour with lots of info about the food we were eating, the history of the area and lots of tidbits about other places to check out in the area. I'm looking forward to going back to Chinatown to try some more of the great suggestions.

I really enjoyed the tour! Loved, getting to try all the different foods. My favorite was the Peking duck & dim sum. I had to leave a little early so did not get to try the custard, which was okay as I can not have milk products. Our guide, Bert, did a wonderful job of answering question and giving us the history of the area. I would highly recommend this tour and our wonderful guide Bert!!!!

CHINA TOWN TOUR 10/20/12

My sister & I took the tour as part of our vacation to NYC. Burt/Bert (sp) was our guide and he was AWESOME! He took such great care of everyone, made sure our every need was taken care of; he told us great stories, kept the tour moving, it never got boring, the food was fantastic, and we LOVED the egg custard at the end. We also met the lovliest people in our group; the weather was perfect and all in all it was a great time and great memory. For me the only bad thing was seeing the ducks head hanging off the platter LOL but other than that I would HIGHLY recommend the tour to anyone I know going to NYC. Thank you so much!

Great guide and delicious food

Rajhim - not sure of spelling - (the guide) loves this topic (Chinese - history and food), made everyone enthusiastic about it, and gave us great background/historical information about the food and places/activities in the area. The food was high-quality, wonderfully tasty, and not the common Chinese dishes and condiments. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it!

Fun, good, but not covering enough of Chinatown

Bert is a great tour guide. He supplied lots of fun, interesting knowledge about the blocks we covered (I loved the park we went to with all the people hanging out, playing table games, enjoying music, etc). Living in the city for 15 years, Chinatown is one of my favorite neighborhoods to explore. Therefore, knowing the expansiveness of the area, it was disappointing to me to that we remained basically in a 4-5 square block radius. I had been looking forward to seeing and learning about sites I may not have known before (like the interesting areas east of Bowery or the great restaurants/shops north of Canal towards Hester & Grand). The restaurant choices were overall good; the dumplings on 1st stop were GREAT, peking duck was good (I've had better), and the cantonese place was kind-of 'regular'. I think if I was unfamiliar with Chinatown, I would have been more impressed. However, I would still recommend this tour to anyone-- local or visiting. And again, Bert was a great, knowledgeable guide... thanks. :)

It was a first time food tour for me and I enjoyed it very much. The food was excellent as well as the tour and the tour guide. I can only but recommend this tour. Should I have the chance to come back to NYC, I will for sure take one of the other tours offered by Foods of New York.
